Get Out but only once in theatres, and I wasn’t that fond of it either time.

Whom are some actors or actresses that you find excel at bringing a sort of silent, emotional intensity to their performances?October 17, 2017 at 3:32 am #1202239367
Toni Collette or Charlotte Rampling

Well for the actors, the first people to do that were Brando and to a lesser extent Montgomery Clift and James Dean. Actors like Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, Robert De Niro and all the other method actors all successfully managed to bring a quiet intensity to their work as well.
Nowadays though there are many actors that excel at that:
Tom Hardy (in The Drop, Legend, Warrior, Bronson etc. Tbh you can say that any Hardy performance as “silently intense”)
Matthias Schoenaerts (in Bullhead, Rust and Bone etc)
Mark Ruffalo (particularly in his You Can Count on Me days)
Michael Fassbender (in Shame, Hunger, etc)
Casey Affleck (in Manchester by the Sea, Gone Baby Gone, The Assassination of Jesse James etc)
Mickey Rourke (in The Wrestler and in his younger years as well)
Emory Cohen (in Brooklyn)
Ryan Gosling (in Drive, Half Nelson, Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines, The Believer etc)
To be honest, when he really wants to, Mark Rylance can really do that, as can Oscar Isaac.

For quiet intensity, there must be a tip of the hat to Holly Hunter, Jane Wyman, John Mills, Marlee Marlin, and Patty Duke. All won Oscars playing mutes in highly dramatic roles.
What award recognized movie character is a near mirror image of you in terms of personality, not necessarily appearance?October 17, 2017 at 12:30 pm #1202240706
For what I know no movie character is a “near mirror” of me, but I feel very close, between the others, to both Charlotte and Bob from Lost in Translation (maybe that’s the reason why it’s my favourite film). Maybe slightly more to Charlotte, due to my young age.
